“What a charming, delightful delivery of catechetical content for the very young! Not only does it present the child’s experience at Church in the sacramental setting of Sunday Mass, but it concentrates that content in repetition, with a definitive rhythm and even some rhyme. Very young children can “read” within the arms of their parents – cementing their “learning with love.” Quick! I need two copies immediately for a grandson and a great grandson!” –Dr. Carol Younger, Author for WINE (Women in the New Evangelization), Retired teacher, counselor, administrator, and grandmother of eight
